What is Druidry?

Druidry encourages us to love widely and deeply

It fosters:
Love of the Land, the Earth, the Wild – reverence for Nature

Love of Peace. Druids were traditionally peace-makers, and still are: each ceremony begins with Peace to the Quarters, there is a Druid’s Peace Prayer, and Druids plant Peace Groves.

Love of Beauty. The Druid path cultivates the Bard, the Artist Within, and fosters creativity.

Love of Justice. Druids were judges, and law-makers. Traditionally Druids are interested in restorative, not punitive, justice.

Love of Story & Myth. Druidry recognises and uses the power of mythology and stories.

Love of History & Reverence of the Ancestors. Druidry recognises the forming power of the Past.

Love of Trees. Druids today plant trees and Sacred Groves, and study treelore.

Love of Stones. Druids today build stone circles, collect stones and work with crystals.

Love of Truth. Druid Philosophy is a quest of Wisdom.

Love of Animals. Druidry sees animals as sacred, and teaches sacred animal lore.

Love of the Body. Druidry sees the body and sexuality as sacred.

Love of the Sun, Moon, Stars & Sky. Druid Starlore, embodied in the old stories and in the stone circles, teaches us a love for the Universe.

Love of Each Other. Druidry fosters the magic of relationship, of community.

Love of Life. Druidry encourages celebration and full commitment to life – it is not a spirituality that wants us to escape from life.
